North Georgia Real Estate | Blue Ridge Mountains Luxury Log Cabins, Lakefront Properties | Blackberry
To me, Blackberry is some tasty treat that I find growing on the side of a country road or in my yard which is why I recently attended a workshop to learn more about the other Blackberry. And I now know that in addition to being addicted to Active Rain, Coca Cola, and ice tea, I will have to add a Blackberry device to the list of my addictions. I think my choice of device at this juncture, is the Blackberry Bold because it has higher screen resolution and comes with almost 1 GIG based on the instructor's advice plus feedback from a room full of real estate agents already using Blackberrys (Blackberries sp.?).
The first thing I learned is that Blackberry is really the software and perhaps, I was the only person on the planet who did not know this. Anyway, I know now. I, by no means, am trying to be an expert on this topic but thought I would share some helpful information that I learned through this workshop. Perhaps, you are well along the Blackberry learning curve and will already know much more than I am including in this post, but for those that might not be as advanced, I hope you will find this information helpful:
Research In Motion (RIM) first introduced the Blackberry to market in 1999 and has risen to become virtually a household name.Blackberry is a phone, email, sms, organizer, address book, arcade, media player, picture taker, navigator, chat messenger, calculator, alarm clock which will probably become your best friend. I'm told some people love their Blackberry so much, they give it a name. As for mine, it will be named Boopi after my cocker spaniel who was my very best friend for more than 14 years. So, my Blackberry will have some large paws to fill!
It appears the Blackberry slices, dices, does the tango and waltz - but seriously, Blackberry models offer a host of all-in-one functions and features right out of the box. All-in-one device that is Integrated meaning all of the native applications included in the Blackberry operating system are seamlessly integrated with one another. For example: you receive an email from a friend that contains the telephone number of another friend to call. Within the email application, you can click the phone number and then easily dial without leaving one application to go to another - thus Integrated. Or you can snap a photo and send it via email from within the camera application. And folks, that's about as far as my knowledge and expertiese go at this point.
I'll sum this up with a list of helpful Blackberry Tools and Websites and welcome any comments or suggestions for tools, tips and advice as I am still in the research mode at this point.
